Monitor Audio MR4 Speakers, They may be “entry level” but the sound is amazing for this size and price

So happy with the quality of sound especially as part of surround sound.

I have waited till i completed the burn in time for these speakers (100 hours i believe) before commenting on them. Before i start i have to say that everybody hears differently, has diff equipment, room shapes etc so this is from my own perspective :)wow. I have a pretty symmetrical room and the stereo image that i am getting from these speakers is mind blowing, bass is on point, trebles not harsh infact cymbals sound a tad more lifelike. They not power hungry either, i am using a cambridge audio azur 640a (65w) and have no need to go over the 9pm position on the volume knob. I personally would tell anyone to buy these, they sound imo superb :).

I own monitor audio bx5 bronze, which is an older version of mr4, and look almost identical. They may be ‘entry level’ but the sound is amazing for this size and price. They are probably amongst the best and most versatile entry level floorstanders. I am using them with an nad c326 amplifier.

Comments from buyers

“Great speakers for the price.
, As good as the bronze speakers to my ears.
, Excellent Speakers

Initial impressions upon unpacking were excellent. Very good looking speakers with excellent build quality. Even my wife, who had staunchly advocated against floor standers due aesthetics, grudgingly agreed they are indeed nice additions to the lounge. Dialogue in movies is good but for a complete and accurate evaluation i will need to hook remaining speakers in 5. 1 setup (bookshelf, centre and woofer). Had these speakers for more than 2 years now and loving them. I really think these speakers can hold their own with more expensive speakers (in a medium/large size environment – 4mx6m). The wife loves these and is now a firm believer of floor standers.

I’ve owned the bx2’s for about 3 years now and have been very happy with them. I purchased these along with a centre speaker from monitor audio to create a 5. 1 system for our small cinema room. I would honesty say that they provide pretty much the same sound quality as the bronze speakers. Side by side i can’t really tell much difference. They are solid, come with floor spikes in the box. The highs, mid and bass are great for both movies and music from hi res files and vinyl. I honestly can’t believe how good a deal these are for such quality speakers.

It may be classed as ‘entry level’ for monitor audio but it is so far exceeding my expectations. The items are solid lumps, very well made. What i didn’t see on the reviews or description, the speakers come with a set of 8 floor spikes, and since it is front and rear ported they also include 2 foam stoppers to plug the rear port if you are situating them near a wall.

Q.Acoustics QA3058 Headlight Speaker for All Devices White : Amazing sound quality for little money

For amateur listener they are more than good. I have paired with onkyo 9010 in a room of 15sq/m. The sound and the base is better than i expected to be. Also they look very good, i like the round shape of speakers. Totaly recomend for amateur listeners like i am.

Really great speakers for excellent price – extremely happy . Q acoustics have nailed it again.

Smart and well-sounding speaker which is worth at least the double of his price.

Rich bass, super high end too. Great as additional or main l/r speakers for dolby atmos and other speaker set up for movies too.

  • Speaker bargain of the year? Interim review.
  • me too wanted to upgrade my floor speakers and found that installing these was very easy and the walnut finish on the sides and graphite
  • Wow !!!

Q.Acoustics QA3058 Headlight Speaker for All Devices White

I have owned these speakers for just over 3 weeks, to be honest they are the cheapest pair of speakers i’ve had in the last 30 years, the last 2 pairs i had cost close to £1k. I read reviews online and also did research on an online hifi forum to get user comments which were very helpful. They advised me not to assess them on first listen as they need considerable break in time before they sound their best, this proved to be correct as straight out of the box they sounded dull and bloated, thankfully that didn’t last long and after an hours playing time they began to sound considerably better. Full break in was accomplished in 3-5 days and they then sounded exceptional. Being large speakers with a double driver compliment for bass they can really shift air at low frequencies, they need careful positioning away from corners and the back wall if the bass is to sound well balanced and not ott. Qa supply soft foam bungs to put into the rear reflex ports to reduce the bass level if they have to be used near a back wall, i actually have to use them as can only have mine 6-8″ from the wall, there is a fair amount of adjustment possible with the bungs depending how far into the ports you push them. The overall sq is superb and far better than you would expect at this price. Bass through midrange to treble the sound is clean and clear without being clinical, they have effortless dynamics and go very loud cleanly with not much amp power, definitely a party animal. I’m very critical when i get any new bit of gear and tend to play it to death trying to find something which it can’t handle, in this case i’ve failed miserably, any genre, any level, they handle it beautifully. I’m driving it with a relatively inexpensive amp the yamaha as501, makes me wonder just how good it could sound with a better amp.

Superb speakers, me too wanted to upgrade my floor speakers and found that installing these was very easy and the walnut finish on the sides and graphite finish on the front look super sleek paired with the hifi. Highly recommended if you are thinking about these, awesome bass depth and a richer/fuller sound with vinyl, tape and cd and aux input tv’s etc. The fact that the actual speaker cones are raised from the floor fills the room with sound and almost adds a 3d effect giving those sounds to ‘weave’ around.

These speakers arrived very quickly after ordering and thankfully were packed in two separate boxes. They are very heavy being almost 18kg each. They were well protected and the packaging is well up to the job. The speakers have been superceded by the 3050i range of “improved” speakers but these are award winning speakers in their own right and are now being offered at a reduced price because of the new range being introduced. One unpacked and the spikes fitted moving them into the desired position was a bit problematic because of the weight, dimensions and lack of gripping points. It was a bit like handling a giant heavy bar of soap. Eventually i succeeded and connected them to my new yamaha amp. (see my review of the yamaha as501 if you are interested. )this is a first impressions review only as the speakers obviously need to be run in.

Hi,just to be clear – i have not purchased these speakers from this supplier. A friend of mine bought them and i was eager to have a listen with some of my own music. He has an ok setup – arcam aplha 8 amps, decent cd player and decent separate dac. Well, they go loud and have loads of punch, nice top end. Acoustic recordings sound absolutely great and a big orchestra has weight and presence – massively. And still, something was not quite right with rock music. When the going got tough – you know, when foo fighters are all out – then they lose precision and things can get a tad “messy”. Also, after listening to them in a demo at a hifi shop and at my friends’ house i thought the bass has a tendancy to be boomy. To be fair, this could be room choice and speaker placement. So, if you have to place them against a wall you may be disappointed – however, they do come with plugs for the (single) rear port which will help.

I have them wired into a denon avr-x2400h and the sound is amazing. I have been trying every kind of music i own, and the sound is flawless. From rock, jazz, pop, soul and dance music, all sounds smooth like butter and punchy when needed. The build and finish is also beautiful. I highly recommend them, you won’t be disappointed. I was toying with the idea of buying the 2050’s for a while and thought what the heck, let’s spend a bit extra, as the last time i bought decent speakers was over 30 years ago. The hifi mags reviews were spot on. Brilliant,beautiful sound that your ears will love you for.

Couldn’t be happier with these speakers. Superb midrange clarity on vocals and guitar etc.

I’ve had these about a month now and i am still being pleasantly surprised at just how good they are. I’ve owned many speakers down through the years, some of them in the four-figure price bracket and can honestly vouch that these 3050s can hold their heads high and, in my opinion, rank alongside many long established competitor brands that are considerably more expensive. Also they are very robustly constructed and finished. I have nothing negative to say about them.

TANNOY Eclipse Two Oak : Great value

No need for a subwoofer with these. If tested professionally they may find mid tones to be a bit base, but i really like what these sound like.

Powerful and great bass sound for the price.

Fantastic speakers, which have been truly tested by my new collection of vinyl soundtracks. I am no audiophile, but to my ears (and of course, correctly mated with good quality receiving equipment) these are extremely good value for money. Nothing quite beats blasting out ‘tie fighter attack’ while making a cup of tea.

Tempted by the tannoy reputation, the great price and having owned tannoy in the past i went for a pair of these speakers. Firstly, the sound is excellent from these slim towers; they definitely need the feet attached for stability but the black vinyl wrap doesn’t give a sense of real quality. They’re supplied with small speaker spikes and cups to protect wooden floors (which is a nice touch as usually cups have to be purchased separately or coins used) they have an open and smooth detailed sound with no apparent harshness and with just enough bass (for my tastes anyway). They can’t be bi-wired as they have only one set of terminals. On first listen they have a nicely balanced sound with a variety of music from rock to classical and don’t sound strained at increased levels although they’re not run in yet and haven’t been pushed too hard. At their original selling price i would have been disappointed as the pretty basic packing consists of each speaker wrapped in a polythene bag with 2 polystyrene end pieces inside the cardboard box doesn’t exude quality. The back corner of one of the speakers was very slightly deformed by the pressure of the polystyrene being pushed over the speaker/bag. However, this was minor when the price i paid was taken into account but i did expect more from tannoy. They haven’t had a chance to run in yet so they should sound even better over the next week or so as they loosen up. These are bargains at the £99 price.

I bought a pair of these from richer sounds solihull last week for £129. 99 there is simply one word to descrbe theese speakers and that is amazing. Theese are the best budget speakers i have ever owned i could not be more happier with the sound quality it really has given my cd collection a new dimension in sound quality. A huge thankyou to martin the manager at richer sounds solihull for his great help and customer service.If you are looking to buy a pair of budget speakers i can highly reccommend theese without hesitation. Pop down to your local richer sounds store and grab a pair of theese beauties at such a low price of £129. Believe me it will be the best £129. 99 you will spend you will not be dissapointed.

TANNOY Eclipse Two Black Oak : A big improvement over inbuilt tv speakers. Clarity and balance is good, and they’ve got enough omph for my relatively small 16sq metre living room. I did struggle with the bass being too boomy initially because my seating position is up against a wall (i can’t change this), but plugging the ports with a sponge did an excellent job of reducing it. So although they’re not much to look at, for the £100 i paid they are well worth it.

The tannoy eclipse 2 is a budget floor standing speaker, which at the offered price of £119 with free delivery is amazing. It is easy to install, literally 4 screws for the plinth and 4 spikes for each speaker then attach the wires from the amp to the terminals. The are well built for the price and sound very clear. Initially they sound bass light, but this quickly resolves as the speaker is used. Yep they sound better with each use and are very very good. They are perfect for an entry level or second system and to be honest flatter most components. I use mine with a vintage quad 33/303 based system in which they replaced old celestion ditton 15 speakers. Not at alli have already recommended them to others and if you are in the market for cheap floorstanders give these a try you won’t regret it.

Yamaha LSX-170 USB : Surprisingly good. Looks beautiful and sounds awesome

The design,and build quality are gorgeous, the lighting is smooth and warm, but the sound quality is at the star of the show,and with the current price for this model, makes it a bargain, the deep bass could be felt in my tooth fillings the high tones have a clarity i haven’t heard in a bluetooth speaker ever, you simply must use the mobile yamaha app to take advantage of the graphic equalizer function, i hope that app is improved upon for the user interface isn’t super easy to use but it is a good tool nonetheless.

I bought this for an apartment where a big stereo would be too much, but a little bluetooth speaker too small. I will use it wired most of the time. The sound quality is really surprising, clear, transparent, no colouration to speak of, bass is deep and clean, it sounds nice. It likes being against a wall for a bit more bass. I don’t know why the black one was over 400 gbp and the gold, mine, was 175 – really pleased. It really makes me wonder if low end hifi has a future, why bother buying a mini system?.

Delivery was fine and in time. The yamaha lsx-170 is performing very good.

The lighting is very cool and the sound is awesome. It’s elegant looking and it fits anywhere in the house.

  • Superb sound, looks incredible
  • upgrade your home audio sound quality
  • Surprisingly good. Looks beautiful and sounds awesome

Yamaha LSX-170 USB, Bluetooth, Wireless + Wired

This really is a beautiful thing. Combining lights with sound into a visually pleasing design works so well here – against all odds. The lights are warm and adjustable from a cosy glow to a low table light. But it’s the sound that’s the hero here. It really is very good – surprisingly good. In other rooms i have b&w and monitor audio speakers so i know about good sound and hi-fi components, and this yamaha has not let me down. I’m very pleased with it – it really exceeded my expectation. I’d buy another one without hesitation.

The sound is so pure,the volume is great also its very easy to use. You can download the app from google play or app store, and control the whole thing. I really recommend it to anybody who loves no cables, hanging around audio unit. Range of 10 meters, its slightly too much if you have loads of walls in the way.

Intempo EE1269BRN Mini Jukebox : Five Stars

Bought for an accessory at our wedding. Sadly the volume wasn’t quite loud enough to fill out venue over the general chit chat. However for a smaller venue or home use i can’t rate it enough. Easy to use even for someone who isn’t tech savvy. Produces great sound and now takes prose of place in our dining room and we will use for entertaining.

You can plug anything into the back with phono leads or 3. The bluetooth feature is fantastic.

Sony GTK-XB90 High Power One Box Music System : Sure a bit overpriced for the sound. But I

My son got this for christmas it’s amazing the sound is unreal he loves it and the lights are class.

That about sums up what is basically a bluetooth speaker. But one that will seriously kick your (and your neighbours) ass. If you fancy being evicted and having the police pop in to your party then this is definitely something you’ll want to buy. Soundwise it is very impressive and pumps out some high quality noise. The fact that it has an extra bass button shows who it’s aimed at. My collection is sadly lacking in doof doof but even in my world of classic rock and metal it packed a powerful punch. It was easy to set up and even comes with a built in light show just in case the noise itself isn’t enough to get the folk next door hating you with a vengeance. To be honest it’s not likely to get an awful lot of use but it’s well made, does everything it claims to, lasts up to 16 hours of a charge and will make your party go with a swing.

On a basic sound comparison, this speaker is virtually no better than an ion block rocker i bought for £50 from john pye auctionsi appreciate this is more of an opinion than a review but i don’t think it’s worth the money, certainly no more than £200. Normally i’d try an item like this out in currys etc but due to time constraints (and trusting the brand) i simply ordered it from amazon. Where?slightly lame product in my opinion.

Only let down is no remote control. Although with the app downloaded you can control from your phone. Amazing sound quality and looks the mutts nuts too.

Volume is very nice but isn’t crazy loud, until you crank up the equilizor using the app, then it proper bangs.

Sure a bit overpriced for the sound. But i needed the built in battery so i have nothing to complain about. Bass could be a little more noticeable at lower volume but when you pump up the volume you will feel it.

Wow, this is a fantastic speaker music system that no self-respecting party goer should be without. The speaker arrives very well packed inside a heavy duty cardboard box. Inside the box are the following: • speaker • power cable • remote control • manuals and warrantyi was surprised at how big and heavy this speaker was … measuring approximately 67cm in height x 33. 6cm in depth and it weighs an impressive 14kg. The speaker case is designed with a matt black soft touch rubber type material on its exterior. It also has carrying handles on either side making it more portable. On the top of the speaker are various buttons as follows: • on/off switch • volume keys (increase and decrease) • extra bass on/off buttonsalso on the top of the speaker are three led lights • one will light when you have a usb device plugged in • a pairing light • an audio in light. On the rear of the speaker are the various ports … these are explained in detail inside the manual. This is a very noticeable item and its looks will not appeal to everyone … i don’t feel it would add to the decoration of your living room, it is more of a ‘take it out of the box for a party’ type of speaker.

The box also contains:ac cordoperating instructionsinstruction manualquick setup guidewarranty cardthis speaker is very large and quite heavy, i was hesitant to use this speaker as i feared complaints from our neighbours. Easy to use and setup straight from the box, i connected to my iphone 6s plus and was playing music via spotify in a couple of minutes. This would be absolutely fantastic for a party, especially when you have guests indoors and outdoors. Great light show that adds something special. A quality product from sony that i will enjoy using.

Excellent speaker, no issues with sound, if you like music is the one to buy. Took this to centre parcs and the kids and adults loved the microphone input and music quality.

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with this beast of a speaker. I’m not sure the neighbours have enjoyed it so much. This music system packs a serious punch and is best suited for those wanting to host a party or to at least feel like they’re having a party every time they use it. It’s very easy to set up out of the box. I paired my phone via bluetooth and was streaming music in no time. You can also connect via nfc (and indeed via cable into a port at the back). Clear and powerful with amazing bass (especially once you hit that bass boost button) and, crucially, avoiding distortion at higher volumes. The lights on the front of the speaker automatically sync to the music that’s playing which is a nice touch. They’re really best used as a party addition, i’m not that keen on a light show when simply listening to music at home.

Looks brilliant thus far, still exploring what it can do, but brilliantly now connects up with my amazon echo and therefore 40 million songs via there very affordable amazon’s music unlimited (£3. Only given it three stars, as it would appear i can’t link my sony xb-30, that i purchased earlier this year, and difficult trying to contact sony to see if they have a solution.If they can resolve that i’ll give it 6 stars.

Sony GTKXB60L : Superb Speaker

Even though it seems to distort the sound in the high range and extra base but if you lower the volume just a little and believe me its still loud enough and the sound is very very good , i bought 2 and linked them and the sound is again very good , the light show is great and there are apps out there that can help you up the settings to your own preferences all in all i think they are real value for money at the bonus price well worth the try . I`l definitely be buying the grandkids a couple that im sure they will be delighted with , hope this helps you in a little way .

Having bought this for our son for xmas, i didn’t have a clue on quality value for money ect. However, on recieving this speaker amd listening too the sound quality. The sound quality is amazing. With the added extra of the lights. The speaker is amazing and well worth the money.

99 on ‘deal of the day’ offer and for that much is worth every penny. Nice and solid build, heavy but easy to carry with handles both sides. Powerful and sound quality is ok for what you pay. I think is naive to compare the quality of the sound with bose (like some other guy did) – you get what you pay for. It is a descent speaker, perfect for garden parties and other small gatherings.

This is hands down the best bluetooth speaker out there. A few imperfections, but very nearly perfect. Reminds me of the old megabass boomboxes of the 80’s. Note that there are two volume controls, bluetooth volume from your phone, and another from the speaker. When both are maxed out then it does get muddy, but honestly you’re not going to listen to it that loud as you’ll soon have a headache. You can plug into line-in, but that won’t be nearly as loud. Probably not, but that’s not the intended purpose. This is truly portable, and sounds great replaying phone quality music.

Which pleased my 14 year old immenselyeasy to set up, brilliant light displays easy to control via phone or speaker1 very happy sonthank you.

This was a gift for my son’s birthday. Looks and feels a substantial bit of kit.

Bought for a house party, used with a few other smaller sony speakers. Used this to provide the base and the others to provide the sound. Took a while to work out how to link but once done very effective especially with the line out function still working.

 sony’s ‘(gtk-xb60) high power one box music system’ is a bit of a mouthful, but i’ve certainly been quite surprised with this, straight out of the box. I’ve only had the unit up and running since friday, so i intend to return and update this review, once i’ve had more time with it). It’s a sizeable / substantial piece of kit, but not so big that you can’t actually do anything with it. ) 22′ / 56cm x 10′ / 26cm x 10-11′ / 27cm (measuring the front, width / height, then the depth), with a fair amount of weight to it. The most immediate advantage of the design is that it can be orientated either upright (‘portrait’) or on it’s side (‘landscape’), and with the lift / carry handles that are integrated into the case design, you’re never left to scrabble around when trying to move it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the unit was shipped / delivered with a charge in the battery, so the unit was up in running almost immediately from getting it unpacked (there’s the usual multi-lingual instructions, warranty information and uk power cable in the box). On powering up, the unit defaults to looking for a bluetooth source (it’ll appear as ‘gtk-xb60’) and paired immediately with my phone.

Incredible sound with any style of music you decide to play. Apart from maybe a more easily said model name, there isn’t much negative feedback on this product.

We bought this for my son and he is delighted, it is very loud and has great base, he carries it everywhere so it is portable x durable. One of it’s main jobs is to be played at full blast in the football teams changing room to rouse the team x scare the opposition, it’s perfect for that. One bit of advice if you were hosting a large party you might need 2 linked.

Battery life is very good last for about 8 hours on a beach. Speaker design is very good also – don’t need to hide it in closed or under the bed. Bought it as a gift but now i want one.

This is a great speaker for a party, however the sound quality and clarity compared to a bose sound dock is some way off. The bass is great and the light show from the speaker is a great added feature and went down a treat at my daughters 5th birthday and nye party. However for those that like their sound quality, rather than quantity this is not the speaker for you. . I have however party chain linked this to my bose sound dock and the two combined provide a great balance of bass and treble. Battery makes this very flexible and i suspect it will be venturing out into the garden over the summer (with the bose linked to it).

Great sound and great product.

Review for sony gtk-xb60this is a fantastic speaker worthy of 6 stars (if i could). While it is hard to get excited about a speaker, i know, this one is worth it. The sound quality alone is so impressive from low volume to massively loud top end. The bass is punchy at high volumes (the extra bass) and literally hits you both hearing it and feeling it at your stomach while standing in front of it. There isn’t another speaker in the house that can achieve this. There is a button that mutes the beastly bass and tames it for any early morning or late evening listening pleasures, but generally i preferred it on. The overall sound quality is stunning and is uber clear but it does distort at the final top end volume, which is really really loud and not something you would probably have turned up often if at all. The sound manages to be both elegant and beastly depending what features you have set (extra bass) and i don’t have a speaker in the house that can compete. The closest is a quality wifi speaker which this speaker just bested with ease. When at near full volume it very much reminds me of nightclubs where the bass is enough to brutalise your ears.

Bought this for my eldest son for his birthday. He seems to be pleased with it.

Great speaker, bought another so i can have one at each end of the room, would highly recommend.

I got a chance to try this speaker with its big brother, the xb90. The first thing to say is that linking them up wirelessly into a ‘party chain’ so that i streamed music through both speakers in separate rooms which was great. Perfect for a house party or to provide great sound in a larger venue. Though this is the little brother to the xb90 it still packs a powerful audio punch. The sound is great, even at high volume and the bass boost button adds even more to those lower tones. This has a built in battery that can last up to 14 rather than 16 hours but that still seems plenty to me. And the smaller size of it compared to the xb90 might make it a more practical (and considerably cheaper) option for many. It shares all the other great qualities of its sibling.

Battery life is very good last for about 8 hours on a beach. Speaker design is very good also – don’t need to hide it in closed or under the bed. Bought it as a gift but now i want one.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Typical Sony quality.
  • Superb Sony Speaker
  • Excellent product Very loud

Bought this for my eldest son for his birthday. He seems to be pleased with it.

This is hands down the best bluetooth speaker out there. A few imperfections, but very nearly perfect. Reminds me of the old megabass boomboxes of the 80’s. Note that there are two volume controls, bluetooth volume from your phone, and another from the speaker. When both are maxed out then it does get muddy, but honestly you’re not going to listen to it that loud as you’ll soon have a headache. You can plug into line-in, but that won’t be nearly as loud. Probably not, but that’s not the intended purpose. This is truly portable, and sounds great replaying phone quality music.

Very loud and portable, marks very easily tho.

Review for sony gtk-xb60this is a fantastic speaker worthy of 6 stars (if i could). While it is hard to get excited about a speaker, i know, this one is worth it. The sound quality alone is so impressive from low volume to massively loud top end. The bass is punchy at high volumes (the extra bass) and literally hits you both hearing it and feeling it at your stomach while standing in front of it. There isn’t another speaker in the house that can achieve this. There is a button that mutes the beastly bass and tames it for any early morning or late evening listening pleasures, but generally i preferred it on. The overall sound quality is stunning and is uber clear but it does distort at the final top end volume, which is really really loud and not something you would probably have turned up often if at all. The sound manages to be both elegant and beastly depending what features you have set (extra bass) and i don’t have a speaker in the house that can compete. The closest is a quality wifi speaker which this speaker just bested with ease. When at near full volume it very much reminds me of nightclubs where the bass is enough to brutalise your ears.

This is a large speaker, the size of r2d2, and it comes with a correspondingly huge sound. I’d recommend downloading the application as you can control the sound and do things like turn off the lights (which are a bit weak. ) pairing by bluetooth worked straight away, as expected, and the sound from an ipod was loud and clear. I also plugged it into a record player using the supplied leads and got a room filling sound. Design wise it’s not great, and the lights are pathetic, but it’s a great speaker for parties or setting up outside during summer.

This was a gift for my son’s birthday. Looks and feels a substantial bit of kit.

Incredible sound with any style of music you decide to play. Apart from maybe a more easily said model name, there isn’t much negative feedback on this product.

99 on ‘deal of the day’ offer and for that much is worth every penny. Nice and solid build, heavy but easy to carry with handles both sides. Powerful and sound quality is ok for what you pay. I think is naive to compare the quality of the sound with bose (like some other guy did) – you get what you pay for. It is a descent speaker, perfect for garden parties and other small gatherings.

Expensive for what’s out there, but yet again sony impress on me the value of paying for quality. Bass is deep and meaningful. Not just loud but picks up the subtle interlocking bass tones in most modern music. Tried out with xx, gorillaz, some hip-hop, 90s nu rock and some led zep. As good as listening on good quality headphones for really picking out the details in the bass performance. Not as good on the rest of the range (slightly limp guitar solos, unimpressed by reproduction of voices) but that’s allowable as it would be expected to be used in conjunction with other speakers for full range performance. Used with an app so your controller is your phone or tablet or aux lead. Aesthetically it’s a compromise. It’s not meant for the home as a party speaker meaning it’s more suited for smaller events with its built in lights. I would have preferred more classical stylish lines but it’s not in any way displeasing to look at you may get tired of the flashing lights on.

 sony’s ‘(gtk-xb60) high power one box music system’ is a bit of a mouthful, but i’ve certainly been quite surprised with this, straight out of the box. I’ve only had the unit up and running since friday, so i intend to return and update this review, once i’ve had more time with it). It’s a sizeable / substantial piece of kit, but not so big that you can’t actually do anything with it. ) 22′ / 56cm x 10′ / 26cm x 10-11′ / 27cm (measuring the front, width / height, then the depth), with a fair amount of weight to it. The most immediate advantage of the design is that it can be orientated either upright (‘portrait’) or on it’s side (‘landscape’), and with the lift / carry handles that are integrated into the case design, you’re never left to scrabble around when trying to move it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the unit was shipped / delivered with a charge in the battery, so the unit was up in running almost immediately from getting it unpacked (there’s the usual multi-lingual instructions, warranty information and uk power cable in the box). On powering up, the unit defaults to looking for a bluetooth source (it’ll appear as ‘gtk-xb60’) and paired immediately with my phone.

Great sound and great product.

Even though it seems to distort the sound in the high range and extra base but if you lower the volume just a little and believe me its still loud enough and the sound is very very good , i bought 2 and linked them and the sound is again very good , the light show is great and there are apps out there that can help you up the settings to your own preferences all in all i think they are real value for money at the bonus price well worth the try . I`l definitely be buying the grandkids a couple that im sure they will be delighted with , hope this helps you in a little way .

This is a great speaker for a party, however the sound quality and clarity compared to a bose sound dock is some way off. The bass is great and the light show from the speaker is a great added feature and went down a treat at my daughters 5th birthday and nye party. However for those that like their sound quality, rather than quantity this is not the speaker for you. . I have however party chain linked this to my bose sound dock and the two combined provide a great balance of bass and treble. Battery makes this very flexible and i suspect it will be venturing out into the garden over the summer (with the bose linked to it).

Sony GTKXB5B – Excellent quality

Good sound, excellent speaker.

Sound quality was ok (although very bass heavy)unfortunately the bluetooth would just drop out mid song for no reason (did not move my phone)sent it back no problem – went for a bose unit in the end and i’m very happy with it.

Excellent performance with good, solid base.

Awesome bit of kit, seriously good sound and when paired up, just wow. Great for outdoor parties or connected to the tv indoors.

Great sound was the talk of the party.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Very good bit of kit.
  • Amazing sound quality
  • Unreliable Bluetooth

The bass is immense and the mids and highs are so clear too.

A fantastic bit of equipment. Sounds amazing,added bonus having the lighting. Not too bulky and fairly easy to carry.

The sound is great but very very loud.

Great sound and easy to set up 👍.

Great sound that comes from it well worth it.

Excellent product does what it says. Easy to set up bluetooth facility.

Amazing sound quality i’ve always enjoyed products from sony and this is the best one yet.

Wouldn’t pair to the same speaker that i brought.

Absolutely amazing definitely worth the price.

Amazing speaker deffo good for a party.

Good sound, really good bass, nice and loud with no distortion. Nfc and bluetooth make it really easy to connect.

Good soundlove the lights and it so mobile.

Love this speaker loud and no disturbance live the flashing lights.

Ok i was sceptical about this product. Wow what a great piece of kit. Summer’s evening in the garden. Volume half way, billy joel playing through amazon music app. Looking to get the cd player, fm, speaker to pair with it. We had a sonos, a fraction of the price of the sonos and 100% better.

Neighbors in apartment thought music was coming from a car outside 👌.

The Case Guru CaseGuru Present The Visual Arts Experience of Dancing Splash Speaker Column Fountain, BEST SPEAKERS EVER

Sounds and lights that delight. I love lighting, the more unusual the better and these speakers are that little bit different and brilliant. There is quite a lot of wiring to contend with but they are really amusing and actually, playing music via my laptop, these speakers kick out a sound that it really clear. Would make a great gift – all my family and friends want some.

The seller was most help full when i had a problem and sorted it very quickly my son loves the water speakers.

My son wanted these for christmas so, even though i thought they were a bit overpriced for what they are, i ordered them. The first set unfortunately did not work, but the seller very promptly replaced them without question – excellent service. The second set works fine and my son likes them. The sound quality seems ok to me unless they are turned up very loud. The only reason they do not get full marks is because i think they are slightly too expensive for what is essentially a novelty item.

Comments from buyers

“Defiantly worth a buy!, Nice novelty item, ordered 2 of these – one worked fine the other one was missing the leads”

The display is beautiful to watch on your ceiling and the jets are really colourful and move to every beat. The only let down is that they are not portable so have to be plugged into mains or laptop.

Bought these speakers for my teenage son and he loves them and his friends all do to. Great price and fab product would recommend this 100%.

Ordered 2 of these – one worked fine the other one was missing the leads. Ordered 2 of these – one worked fine the other one was missing the leads. They were christmas presents opened on xmas day so had to go out on boxing day to purchase just the leads.

These speakers were so worth the money i paid, i almost paid £28 with no mains outlet but now i’ve got this.

My family will really enjoy these. Would love a bigger set if anyone releases it.

Have not used yet as they are xmas gift, but have taken them out of the box and the quilts seems good as was the packing and postage, will add when have seen them.

This was the best buy for me of 2013. Although this was a present for someone else (who absolutely loved them) i tried them and now i want some for myself too.The delivery was extremely fast and good customer service. I shall defiantly order from them again. The speakers are of fine quality. The colours just mesmerize me, i could sit there all night watching them. The best gift anyone could give id say.

Love these but the connection in the back became loose. Love these but the connection in the back became loose and stopped working after 2 days so now held in with blu tack.

Bought these cheaper water jets with some worry of them breaking after reading reviews but so far nothing has went wrong with them so i’m happy as they are simply fun to look at but it doesn’t make up for the bad sound quality, no bass and the word i use is fuzzy to describe how they sound while playing music etc.

Excellent speakers my girl loves them and they are loud and the water display is really good a + + +.
